Synopsis: Streetcar Lines of the Hub: The 1940s, Heyday of Electric Transit in Boston! Bradley H. Clarke; BSRA; Here is the Boston book you've been waiting for! In1940, streetcar lines of the Boston Elevated still accounted for the lion's share of the company's revenue miles. During World War II, ridership reached record levels and strained the capacity of the system. The trolley's viability was reaffirmed one last time: the 1940s were the heyday of electric transit in Boston. This book covers all 52 routes, and every carhouse, station, and loop, plus the Eastern Mass. St. Ry. lines to Stoneham and Quincy. Acquisition of PCC cars, last days of the Type 4s, and the post-war transition of many routes to trackless trolleys and buses are covered, plus facilities such as the Albany St. Yard and the South Boston power station. Beautifully reproduced photos many in color, which is rare for that time will bring you back to this long-ago era. Nearly 500 b&w and color photos, plus scores of maps and track diagrams. This is truly the most extensive book ever published on Boston surface car operations. Oversized hardcover w/dustjacket, retail $54.95
